    I discovered this quite by accident as a result of a post on AVSForum indicating that our local ABC affiliate had picked this up on a sub-channel sometime this weekend (perhaps Thursday or Friday according to the article).

    At the moment I have to say our ABC is suffering in HD quality as a result, but time will tell as it looks like they are still tinkering with the config this weekend.
